Part C (birth - 2 years old)

§303.33, the definition of service coordination services
(case management), clarifies that the service coordinator is responsible for implementing the early intervention
services identified in a child’s IFSP. We do not agree
with the commenter that the service coordinator for a particular infant or toddler with a disability cannot be an EIS provider for that particular infant or toddler with a disability, because the model of service coordination can vary from one State to another as well as among local communities because of such distinguishing factors as population size and economic, social, or cultural differences. Regardless of the model chosen by a State, we expect service coordination services to remain family centered.
Transition from Part C services (§303.344(h))
Discussion: For consistency with section 636(a)(3) of the
Act and §303.344(h)(2)(iv), we have clarified that the IFSP
must include not only transition steps but transition services needed to support the smooth transition of a child who is exiting the Part C program.
Changes: We have added the phrase “and services” after the
word “steps” to §303.344(h)(1).
